Buff Ducks

Buff Ducks
By Precious McKenzie, illustrated by John Reasoner
Vero Beach, Florida:  Rourke Educational Media, 2013, Ages 6-9

Buff Ducks is a brief story about ducks doing a variety of physical activities. The book starts off by saying, "Ducks get in shape," and ends with, "Buff ducks!"

This is a repetitive book with lots of two word sentences. Examples are:

  • "Ducks run."
  • "Ducks walk."
  • "Ducks waddle."
The illustrations are cartoon-like and colorful.

This book may be interesting for young kids or beginning readers. The illustrations are captivating and kids would probably like them. I would recommend this book for struggling readers because the text is large and there are only a couple of sentences per page.
